Oppe Adult Volunteer Workdays
We are seeking ADULT volunteers to get their hands dirty and help us with the creation of Oppe Elementary School’s new Native Habitat Garden!
During the school day, every student at at Oppe Elementary gets an opportunity to assist us with these projects through their class rotation schedule. While they are small yet mighty, the students do require a bit more supervision and hands on direction. With so much heavy lifting and big tasks ahead of us, we recognize the need for grown-ups to help make some progress too!
That being said, these volunteer work days are intended strictly for adult participation only!
We are seeking individuals who are excited about lifting heavy things, transporting rocks and soil with a wheelbarrow, planting native plants into the ground, installing irrigation systems, and so much more! Sign up for one time slot or for multiple – we are excited to work with you!
